Two arrest warrants have been issued for troubled rapper DMX after he failed to appear at separate court hearings on Tuesday and Wednesday. The hip-hop star, real name Earl Simmons, was due to appear in Yonkers City Court, New York State on Wednesday to answer charges of driving with a suspended license, stemming from an October arrest. The previous day, DMX was a no-show at White Plains City Court, New York State, for charges of speeding, changing lanes dangerously, driving without a seat belt and using a suspended license following a June arrest. White Plains Judge Brian Hansbury had given the rapper until 2pm (local time) on Wednesday to appear in court, but after he failed to show yesterday, issued a warrant.
Meanwhile, 13 miles away, Yonkers Judge Charles Wood was also issuing a warrant. The 36-year-old’s lawyer Murray Richman, says, “In truth, I do not know where he is. Why would he be hiding out from a damn traffic infraction?”
Simmons failed to appear in court last summer to answer the June 2006 charges and an arrest warrant was issued. He was jailed on June 28 last year, but released on $2,500 bail.
Damn, this fool is ALWAYS in jail!
